Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. CDC estimates that an average of 1 in 323 children in the U.S. have CP.
The Community Report is an important resource—it highlights the ADDM Network’s data on cerebral palsy in a way that is useful for stakeholders living in communities across the United States.
Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move. CDC has checklists to help parents and others track a child’s development.
